Pembrokeshire Coast (part 1), Wales 2017 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Travelled: 103 kilometres from Aberystwyth to Moylegrove, Wales

Visited: Mwnt beach and Church (free)

Stayed: A small parking area near Moylegrove N52.07734 W04.76184 (free) no services.

Driving down from Aberystwyth the weather was foul, rain and heavy mist.  It made for a slow trip, the coast is on our right but you could not see it very often.   We turn at Aberaeron and make our way up the hill to Llanerchaeron to visit a Castle only to find it doesn’t open until 1130.  Not in the mood to sit in the Hymer in the rail for an hour we continue south.  By the time we are approaching Cardigan the weather has cleared and patches of sunlight appear.

We turn for the coast and Mwnt.  Mwnt is not really a town or village but some scattered farms a campsite, but it does have a small church that dates back a thousand years with Y Foel Hill as its backdrop.  Pembrokeshire is famous for its coastline and the Lonely Planet state Mwnt is worth a visit.

Just your average B road in Wales.
The Holy Cross Church at Mwnt.
Some part of the old church go back a thousand years but the roof etc is 14th century.
Spot the Hymer photo from Y Foel Hill.
Surfs up at Mwnt Beach. There were actually a couple of guys on boards trying to get a wave.

We have lunched visited the church and walked the hill, so its time to hit the road again.  A quick bit of shopping in Cardigan, at the Aldi for milk and juice not to buy a cardi.  We drive now looking for parking spot for the night.  We hope for some better weather in the morning and the opportunity to walk a section of the Pembrokeshire walking path.

We get lucky after seeing a Wildcamping spot on the GPS, we drive down a long narrow lane south of Molygrove. What a super spot, no through road most people leave before dusk.  As good as wildcamping gets.

It’s late afternoon by the time we settle into our spot and have a quick look around. So we plan a longer walk in the morning at the Welsh weathers’ convenience.  Pam is having a nap, whilst I catch up on some planned maintenance, installing a ‘SOG System’ on the toilet.  Motorhomers and caravaners will know what a SOG system is, it’s not the most interesting subject so you can google it if you like.  A couple of years ago I ask about getting one installed, last year I kept thinking I should have purchased one and as these thing work out, this year I did.  An hour and a half later the jobs done and we are very happy with the results.
